The 1/7th mile dirt oval at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds in Stockton has had entertaining championship battles throughout the summer. Stockton’s Caden Sarale is aiming for his third consecutive sweep of both the winged Super 600 and Non-Wing 600 Micro Sprint divisions.
Following in the footsteps of his BCRA championship winning father John Sarale, Caden looks to cement his legacy as one of the winningest drivers in the 35 year history of the speedway. A strong performance over the dual weekend will aid in Sarale’s bid for a career-defining year. Both divisions compete in a 30-lap feature each night of the Dual.
Caeden Steele has won four features in Super 600 to move within 31-points of Sarale. Nikko Panella, Raio Salmon, and Alex Panella are in pursuit as well. In Non-Wing, the championship lead for Sarale stands at 69 markers over 2020 Restricted champion Brandon Riveira of Tracy. Oregon’s Austin and Ashton Torgerson and Dan Mognaga make up the balance of the top-five.
Fresno’s Colton Key has one win this season in Restricted to enjoy a 25-point margin over Visalia’s Jett Barnes, Sacramento’s Austin Wood, Brentwood’s Isabel Barnes, and Castro Valley’s Andrew Smith. Restricted competes for 25-laps each night.
Manteca’s Brody Rubio leads the Jr. Sprints competitors in the standings with six wins, followed by Oakdale’s Hayden Stepps with two wins. Levi Osborne, Josiah Vega, and Vito Cancilla round out the top-five with 20-lap features on tap each night.
Car and driver entry is $50 each night for track members and $60 for non-members.
Daily tickets are $10 for adults ages 13 and up, $5 for kids ages 6 to 12, seniors 55+, and military, and kids 5 and under are free! Pit Passes are $20 per day. Pit gates open at noon each night with the driver’s meeting at 4:30 pm. Hot laps and qualifying will follow.
